This chamber edition of Dvořák's inimitable cello concerto was first performed in 2018 and has since had numerous performances in the UK, Europe and as far a field as New York.
Written for wind quintet, string quintet and timpani this arrangement makes the most of Dvořák's sublime writing in a new, chamber setting.
• Strings: this arrangement can be performed with a quintet up to a small chamber orchestra section (suggested max. 6 5 4 3 2)
• The Violoncello solo is as Dvořák's original, making this arrangement ideal for intimate, chamber performances, conservatoire final recitals and concerts in a huge variety of settings.
